Default New mods question

hey guys need some advice. im getting ready(like tomorrow) order some new stuff for the truck and wanna make sure im not wasting my money. i have a 08 big horn slt 4x4 with 5.7 in it. all i have is a flowmaster muffler with duals leaving it to the corners with 3 inch tips. i have the mds and hate the sound so i know im ordering the predator so that i can turn it off. i was planning on getting the BFI intake with it as well. my question is, is it a noticable difference with the bfi, or would i feel the same change and response with just the tuner. i really want a spray on bedliner as well but can only afford 2 of the 3. and if i will actually be able to tell a significant gain with the bfi then im sold. i just dont want to spend the 400 bucks on it if im not going to tell any difference thats worth that money.any ideas or thoughts or results would be geat!

thanks guys
oh yea also getting the plugs changed tomorrow...the factory ones ok or the ngk or bosch that much better?

Since you already have a freer flowing exhaust, go with the BFI and Predator to complete the best bang for the buck mods you can do to wake up that HEMI.
